Dual Personality

By Philip_H
The Sally B, an airworthy 1945-built Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress based at the American Air Museum Duxford, England, now preserved and operated as a flying memorial to the tens of thousands of American aircrew who lost their lives in her sister aircraft during the Second World War.

The Sally B was used in the film Memphis Belle as one of 5 flying B-17s needed for various film scenes, and it was used to replicate the real Memphis Belle in one scene. Half of the aircraft is still in the Memphis Belle livery

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Wool Church'.

Best wishes,
Philip
